Exam contingency day

The Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ) have announced a contingency day for the summer exams series 2019. The date that has been set aside as the ‘contingency day’ is WEDNESDAY 26 JUNE 2019. 

The contingency day for ALL external examinations has been put in place “in the event of widespread, sustained national or local disruption to examination during the summer 2019 examination series”.

Therefore, in the event of a major disruption, JCQ and/or the relevant Awarding Bodies may decide to postpone an exam to another date in the summer 2019 exam series. This means that any students sitting external examinations in summer 2019 must be available until Wednesday 26 June to sit any exams that had to be postponed.

Summer 2018 certificates

Examination certificates will be available for collection from our main reception from Thursday 29 November 2018. If students are unable to collect them in person then someone else can do so on their behalf, provided they have a written, signed statement from the student authorising them to do so.

  • It is the students responsibility to collect their certificates from the end of November after the summer exams (January for November resit exams)
  • All unclaimed certificates will be kept under secure conditions for a minimum of 12 months from the date of issue
  • Any unclaimed certificates may be destroyed or returned to the exam boards after retaining them for a minimum of 12 months
  • If unclaimed certificates are required after the 12 months unfortunately the student will need to contact the exam boards direct for a replacement certificate
